A Jenner & Block team led by Partners Emily M. Loeb, Alison I. Stein
, Christine Braamskamp
and Gabriel K. Gillett
assisted Facebook during its global consultation process that led to this week’s announcement of the first 20 members of its content Oversight Board. The Oversight Board is an independent body that will focus on Facebook’s most challenging content issues. To ensure that the Oversight Board is able to make independent judgments, and maintain the highest levels of accountability and governance, Jenner & Block assisted Facebook in vetting candidates to identify potential conflicts of interest.
